With a location just a short walk from the beach, Surf n Sun Backpackers is another good option for anyone looking for low-budget accommodation in Surfers Paradise.
You’re not just well located for the beach though, as the centre of town is a fairly easy ten minute walk away.
You have the choice of staying in a six-bed dorm – each of which have an ensuite bathroom and a television – or in a private twin/double room (these share bathroom and kitchen facilities with one other room).
If you go for the dorm, linen is provided and you have the use of a reasonably well-equipped kitchen. Note that there are not any lockers but you can make use of the safe behind the reception desk for free.
Facilities for guests include the large kitchen, a lounge room with large-screen TV, a self-service laundry and a small pool. There are also movies and video games you can enjoy for free. There is a bar with prices lower than you will find in town, too.
If you are planning on doing any clubbing, you can get free entry to some of the local nightclubs, as well as free/discounted drinks. And let’s face it: many of the guests are here for the nightlife.
Nice location, nice accommodation (clean and not too cramped), good facilities and a good atmosphere for socializing. One of the better options, in our opinion.
